OMG! The writers of ‘Saturday Night Live’ have been working ‘like crazy’ to write up hilarious jokes and skits for the Oct. 8 episode, making sure to tackle Donald Trump’s latest lewd video scandal. We’ve got the EXCLUSIVE details on what they’ve got in store for fans here!
Donald Trump, 70, has been in hot water ever since The Washington Post released a bombshell tape on Oct. 7, showing the Republican nominee making vulgar remarks about Nancy O’Dell in 2005. So of course, the scandal would be featured in the opening sketch of SNL only one day later, which often tackles political issues. “Last night was a long night and all the writers are working like crazy figuring out some jokes and skits to tackle all the Donald Trump news,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Michael Che and Colin Jost have been working overtime to make Weekend Update heavy on the Donald bashing.” Talk about dedication!
Our source continued, “They also are considering having a dream sequence sketch where Donald & Hillary [Clinton] dream about how their debate will go on Sunday.” This isn’t the first time the hit NBC comedy series has portrayed the presidential candidates for the upcoming election. Only one week ago, for the premiere episode of the 42nd season, the superstar cast put on a hilarious mock debate where Alec Baldwin, 58, took on the role of Donald. Lets just say, he did such a great job with his spot-on impersonation! SNL star Michael served as the moderator Lester Holt while Kate McKinnon slayed as usual with her portrayal of the Hillary.
The vintage tape continues to make it’s rounds on the internet, leading many to come forward to slam the Republican nominee for his comments about his distasteful comments towards women. Since it’s release, Donald made a public statement, claiming the ordeal was merely a “distraction” to more important issues. Meanwhile, his opponent, Hillary, also took to Twitter to take a stand against his inexcusable language. She wrote, “We cannot allow this man to become president.” The two candidates will face off on Oct. 9, for the second presidential debate!
